Qualitative study on MRSA

Quality of life and quality of care for MRSA positive out-patients

There is nothing known about the quality of life and the quality of care for MRSA (methicillin-resistent Staphylococcus aureus) positive patients in the out-patient sector in Germany. In this project, we ask patients regarding their knowledge about MRSA, their attitude and about problems or forms of stigmatization that may occur to them. Meanwhile, we additionally interview local doctors and nursery services. In this project, we use a KAP-survey (Knowledge, Attitude, Practice), combined with a qualitative approach.
